Blackwood Reconciliation Group: Wongi Warrior
Our December 2nd meeting will be screening of the short feature film “Wongai Warrior”.
“Wongi Warrior” is an imaginative short film creatively incorporating a retelling of the life, pain and hopes of Aboriginal World War II hero Jim Brennan and his family. From the deserts of North Africa in World War II to the beautiful land of Western Australia, this film is a ground-breaking collaboration of independent filmmakers and Indigenous community elders to give a voice to the stories of this land. The filmmaker is a former Coromandel Valley resident, Josh Loymeyer, who works for YWAM in Perth. There will be some more promotional material in November to support this, please check with the office.
